Animal is a wildly entertaining rollercoaster ride headlined by Ranbir Kapoor’s staggering performance. Though the problematic aspects related to glorifying toxic masculinity and violence are glaring flaws that must be called out, there is no denying the film’s technical finesse and massy theatrical appeal.

Animal Movie Story

Animal tells the story of Ranvijay Singh (Ranbir Kapoor), the troubled son of a powerful businessman Balbir Singh (Anil Kapoor). Ranvijay grows up seeking his father’s love and validation but struggles to get it. This leads him down a dark path where he resorts to violence to prove his masculinity and punish those who have wronged his family.

After getting expelled from school for threatening students with a gun, Ranvijay is sent away. He returns years later a changed man, with long hair, a beard, and a ruthless drive for vengeance against those attacking his father’s empire. This includes rival gangster Abrar Haque (Bobby Deol). On his warpath, Ranvijay also rekindles a romance with his former love Geetanjali (Rashmika Mandanna) in an intensely volatile relationship.

As the death toll rises, Ranvijay must confront his inner demons and choice between light and darkness. :   Savi - A Bloody Housewife

Animal Movie Reviews

Animal has received mixed reviews from critics:

Bloody, Noisy, Violent Yet Gripping – Animal takes you on a gritty, gory ride with stellar performances from Ranbir and Anil Kapoor. But the misogynistic messaging is hard to ignore.”

The Hindu

Problematic Premise Redeemed by Performances – Ranbir Kapoor delivers a career defining act as an antihero. But the film’s indulgence in toxicity often crosses the line.”


Ultra Violent, Overlong Yet Undeniably Entertaining – At over 3 hours, Animal is self-indulgent yet gripping. Watch for Ranbir’s magnetic act but be prepared for bloodshed.”

India Today

Ranbir’s Show All The Way – For all its flaws, Animal works due to Ranbir’s compelling act. He stands out even in a talanted ensemble cast.”

Times of India

What Makes Animal Movie Special

Here are some standout aspects of Animal:

  • Ranbir Kapoor’s career-best performance: He fearlessly transforms into an antihero with negative shades but makes him painfully human. Gritty, intense and unforgettable.
  • Sizzling chemistry between leads: Ranbir and Rashmika light up the screen. Their volatile romance, though problematic, has palpable intensity.
  • Stellar supporting cast: Anil Kapoor provides strong support while Bobby Deol makes his presence felt in a limited role.
  • Slick action sequences: The action set pieces, styled by international talents, are slickly choregraphed and packing punches.
  • Killer music album: Songs like ‘Saari Duniya’ and ‘Papa Meri Jaan’ work beautifully, amplified by a rocking background score.
  • Arresting visual spectacle: Sweeping drone shots, picturesque locales, lavish production design. Visual splendour at its best. :   Fighter Movie
